Young Heart is quite the departure from Birdy’s previous album, 2015’s dramatic Beautiful Lies. Where Beautiful Lies was a fairy tale, Young Heart is a gritty realist portrait of the artist in pain, looking for the light.

The songs on the album tussle between light and dark, between that vastness of space and the interior of home. The conflict between wanting to hide away and being compelled to go away, to new places and new experiences play out across the record. The album opener Voyager is a beautifully written song about the knowledge and pain that you need to end a relationship, but the no-man’s land where your partner doesn’t know yet. From there, the record speaks of the fallout - the loneliness, the pain of missing the person she still loves, the acceptance of grief being central to love and loss, longing for travel but the pull of the familiarity of home.
